There is a difference with small donations compared to some organization 
funding a specific goal. The former requires management of money and the 
leftovers, the later is simply a contract of that organization (usually with 
an interest in POV-Ray, i.e. for marketing) with specific developers for a 
specific result. That is for example how POV-Ray got into SPEC, and how the 
SMP branch came about.
